Sam Brownback News: Brownback, Landrieu introduce Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act Friday, July 10, 2009 Brownback, Landrieu introduce Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act WASHINGTON U.S. Senator Sam Brownback today with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) introduced the Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act of 2009. This legislation works to ensure that our society recognizes the dignity and sacredness of human life, said Brownback. Creating human-animal hybrids, which permanently alter the genetic makeup of an organism, will challenge the very definition of what it means to be human and is a violation of human dignity and a grave injustice. The Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act would ban the creation of human-animal hybrids. Human-animal hybrids are defined as those part-human, part-animal creatures, which are created in laboratories, and blur the line between species. The bill is modest in scope and only affects efforts to blur the genetic lines between animals and humans. It does not preclude the use of animals or humans in legitimate research or health care where genetic material is not passed on to future generations, such as the use of a porcine heart valve in a human patient or the use of a lab rat with human diseases to develop treatments. forget healthcare, the economy and all those other non important issues because we SOOOOO need to stop those pesky human-animal hybrids!
